    anyone have and experience with the aftermarket headlights from various places? The stock ones are in pretty bad shape....just wanting to replace. Don't want to buy Junk and OEM's are crazy expensive. Any recommendations ? Also , anyone know how the fake woodgrain radio and console come out? Started wrapping the window switch plates today with avery black brushed metal vinyl..only those 2 parts left to go

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    I have angel eyes on mine found them on ebay the whole set was like 100 bucks. . . I have 03 tundy. I did a retrofit on mine and they are perfect. I even have the side marker lights not water nothing in marker lights...

    If you want to keep your factory lights 3m makes the best restore kit i believe on the market..

    Push the vents in on the bottom to expose the screws. Pull the heater, ac and fan knobs off SLOWLY. There’s a small clip behind each that provides a snug fit. You don’t want to lose those. There may also be screws behind those knobs as well(can’t remember). After that just grab near the vents and pull out. Easy peasy.

    OEM is going to be the best optics. Have you tried polishing them?

    My Akkons are holding nicely after about 2 years. $115 set of the 2002 AC Model.

    Disclaimer: The first set leaked within a month on one of the side blinkers only. They sent an entire new set for free! Said keep the old. Stoked as I have an extra set of HeadLamp Assys to experiment on with Projectors Set ups.

    Any of the aftermarket ones I have used have been good to go. Haven’t had any issue with them leaking or fitment.
